one step further
I'm quite happy that I've completed the "philosophy and procedures check" — commonly referred to as P&P — of my new maintainer process. let's see what T&S (the "tasks and skills check") will bring.

direct rendering
yesterday I realized that direct rendering (dri) is not working anymore on my xserver (checked as usual with glxinfo | grep -i direct). the solution was:
Section "Device"
        Identifier    "Intel Corporation 82865G Integrated Graphics Controller"
        Driver        "intel"
        Option        "Cachelines"        "3582"
& the most interesting part: all this fuzzing around for dri or the modlines is not the xserver's fault, not the monitor's fault, not the graphic card's fault — but it's necessary because there's a KVM-switch between the monitor & the machine. if I plug the monitor directly into the machine's vga-port I don't even need an xorg.conf.

arrivo subito
the CDs are roasting, the web page is updated, the batteries for the {pre,mini}-amp are bought, the t-shirts are drying — this year's trip to ferrara is getting closer.

NM - takeoff
a few hours ago I was assigned an application manager for my new maintainer process (the path to becoming a Debian developer). — exciting :-)

white brick
I got my fonera on monday, named her kes, had to reset her once 2 hours after connecting her (deleting too many files is no good idea), had no real luck with trying to convert her into a repeater — & today I bricked her (by trying to install a newer busybox package). the wlan led is dead, no wlan signals, no connect on the lan port, ... (resets didn't help, & a flashing lan led when the cat5 cable is connected doesn't help either.) I guess the only solution involves a serial cable, & that's far beyond my capacities, therefore I hope that my friend & hausmasta chrisu will take this challenge :-) btw: playing with the fonera firmware (based on openwrt) could be fun.

outside the window
what's this? armageddon, an eclipse of the sun, nuclear fallout? outside the window it's dark as at 21:30. thunder starts rolling; probably we'll have a nice thunderstorm here in a few minutes.

happy birthday
the guiding & scouting movement celebrated its 100th birthday today — on 1907-08-01 the first scout camp on brownsea island started. I wore my neckerchief at the office & also on the first evening of this year's open air cinema season at the zeughaus.
